It still feels like a dream. Yesterday I looked at the calendar and today's date struck me like there was something Missing. I'm still trying to understand how people just leave like that. No goodbye, no sign. We could have laughed over the phone today, wishing you a happy birthday.
A beautiful, free and jovial soul. That was the kinda spirit you had. You encouraged me when I was down and made me realize some bitter truth. You've always had my back since when I was little. You were always concerned about the welfare of everyone around you and you were very much accommodating. I could go on and on.
I'm still sad that I wouldn't see you again in this world and wouldn't even get to talk to you. I find solace in the thought that one day we'll see each other again in a place where death will have no influence on anyone. Your memories will never be forgotten Aunty Toyin

Dear Toyin,
It’s still all so surreal
How and why this happened is still a mystery.
You were so full of life last time I saw you in February 2020.
How this rather brief illness took you away from us is still unbelievable.
It remains a rude shock till date.
But we take solace in the word of the Lord,knowing fully well he knows what we do not know.
“To live on in the hearts of those we love is never to die”..
Continue to rest in the bossom of heaven ...

My Dearest Sister and confidant,It has taken me over 6 months to post this tribute. You left us All shattered and devastated on the 30/07/2020. I have kept asking this question why did this happen to you my Kid sister and the last born of the family. Your death is still a mystery to me and only God can provide answers to the question in my heart which is Why Toyin? . I still shed tears when I look back at our growing up . How when you were still a baby , I put you on my back , sing to you to make you fall asleep precisely in 1980/1981 and gave you your food. I saw how you started teething and walking on your feet. How could I forget that that I acknowledged you in my undergraduate thesis as ‘My Little Idol’ in 1991.
Your death was also very painful to me because you were a person who could freely discuss issues with me and call me at any time. We both could relate and plan together. On my birthdays you are normally the first to call or send me birthday wishes. I can go on and on.

Your death was or rather still very painful as you died Young at 40 years old. You would have been 41 years on 11/03/21 but sadly gone to rest with the Lord.Equally painful, as you left a young son age 6/7 years old. You will never see him be a teenager and a grow to be an adult/man.

My Heart is still very heavy Toyin but I will never forget you. Your memories will continue to linger in my heart .
YOU ARE SORELY MISSED.
